HUECU to open new branch at Assembly Row

Enhancing its commitment to the Harvard community, HUECU will join Partners HealthCare with a full-service branch location at the hospital network’s new Assembly Row campus

CAMBRIDGE, MA (April 5, 2017) — Harvard University Employees Credit Union (HUECU) today announces the upcoming opening of a new, full-service Credit Union branch. In April 2017, HUECU will join Partners Healthcare in the group’s new Assembly Row location in Somerville, MA.

Tom Montilli, HUECU’s SVP and Chief Marketing & Retail Officer, said, “This is an exciting opportunity to come together with Partners HealthCare and offer more convenience and value to our members. Partners HealthCare staff who belong to the Credit Union can now access HUECU’s full suite of banking and lending services in a dedicated branch location. For convenient access, the new HUECU branch at Assembly Row will be staffed by two full-time HUECU employees, MondayFriday from 9:00am – 4:00pm, and an ATM at that location will also be available outside of those business hours.”

Partners HealthCare is a not-for-profit healthcare system and the largest employer in Massachusetts. Committed to patient care, research, teaching and service, Partners HealthCare is a national leader in biomedical research and comprises several hospitals that are teaching affiliates of Harvard Medical School. The group’s recently constructed campus on Somerville’s Assembly Row has unified the majority of the Partners HealthCare administrative workforce into a single location. These departments serve key support functions including finance, human resources, information systems, communications, legal, and more. Building access is limited to the 4,500 Partners HealthCare employees that reside in the new location.
HUECU’s newest branch at Assembly Row will serve this consolidated Partners HealthCare community from departments including finance, human resources, information systems, communications, legal and more. Partners HealthCare staff are eligible for HUECU membership and can enjoy Credit Union benefits such as great rates on mortgages and other loan products, consumer-friendly credit cards with generous rewards programs, and checking accounts with surcharge-free ATMs.

Gene Foley, President & CEO of HUECU, said, “HUECU’s steady, robust growth is directly tied to our aspirations to offer members exceptional service, top quality products and trustworthy financial advice. By opening a dedicated branch at the Partners HealthCare Assembly Row building, we are expanding our presence within the Harvard community and making it easier for Partners HealthCare HUECU members to conduct day-to-day banking activities and meet their long-term financial goals.”

With the opening of the new Partners HealthCare Assembly Row branch, HUECU now has five dedicated branch locations in the Boston and Cambridge area. HUECU is also a member of the CO-OP Shared Branch Network, enabling HUECU members to access their accounts and conduct transactions at 94 locations in Massachusetts and more than 5,000 participating credit union locations across the nation.
